SPANISH FOOTBALL - LIGA ROUND 23 | FC BARCELONA 6 GETAFE 1

SPANISH FOOTBALL action midday with a Round 23 LIGA scheduled match between FC BARCELONA &  Madrid Club GETAFE. Unusual time for Barça but economically beneficial as it coincides with prime-time TV in Asia, especially China. It is one of the reasons that the Spanish League noon games were introduced to penetrate the lucrative Asian markets.

The Asian Barça supporters would have been happy with FC Barcelona winning 6 - 1 in a one side game that disappointed - my view - along with the Getafe fans as the latter really did not put up a good showing or fight. Understand that against Barcelona at home it is always a difficult endeavour but as a spectator one always looks for a more even encounter between two teams. Not the case today.

ALEXIS SANCHEZ ended his goal drought opening in the 6th min for Barça, this was to signal how things were to turn out.

LIONEL MESSI was very active the whole game & scored in the 13th min the second for Barcelona. The Argentine was involved in nearly all of the Barça goals by either taking defenders out of their positions or giving the final pass. Another exhibition from Messi.

His team-mate ANDRES INIESTA was on another level. Vision , control & passing, 95% accuracy. Simply amazing.

DAVID VILLA started & took his opportunity by scoring a goal in the 58th min. The Spanish International finally managed to get a full match & that will be appreciated by him.

The Barça machine continued its demolition job as Getafe basically lowered their heads & accepted their obvious inferiority. TELLO who came on for Alexis scored the fourth in the 78 th min from a Messi pass, INIESTA scored the fifth after a Messi play in the 89th & defender PIQUE got the sixth in the 91st min.

Getafe managed a consolation goal when Barcelona dozed off momentarily in the 82 nd min thanks to ALVARO. This was the only moment of Barça slackness & Getafe good play.
